Label: Columbia/Legacy
At 40 songs deep, The Essential Ray Price spans the man's career from 1950 to 1980. "Release Me" is a perfect example of what old school honky-tonk should sound like – Price's weepy lovelorn crooning floats over sparse drums, scratchy fiddle, big bodied guitar tone and a lap steel that sounds pilfered from Bob Wills' Texas Playboys. "Heartaches by the Number" boasts a Bakersfield blueprint and "For the Good Times" is here in all its countrypolitan glory. Price sheds his nasal inflected voice for a more mature and romantic timbre that glows with subtle emotion.
